He That Hath The Son Hath Life

He That Hath The Son Hath Life

    It has been (for centuries) a great temptation to talented men to spend th eir time studying, arguing and quarreling over doctrine and future events, when they would have been better employed and more greatly used of God in preaching the gospel of our Lord.  It certainly does not harm us to sharpen our minds, to look into the mysteries of God, to inquire into that which is written (revealed and unrevealed) but our powers are limited, our gifts are limited, our time is limited.  Let us sound a clear note concerning that which God has made known without a doubt!  "He that hath His Son hath Life; He that hath not the Son of God hath not life."  (1 John 5:12).

    A man can be saved and not know whether he is Pre-Post- or A-Mil, but a man cannot be saved who does not know Christ Jesus.  A man can be saved without a full knoweldge of T.U.L.I.P., but he cannot be saved without a love for Christ Jesus.  A man can be saved who refuses the Lordship of Elders, but he cannot be saved who refuses the Lordship of Christ Jesus.  A man can be saved who does not enter into the rest of a Sabbath or special days, but a man cannot be saved who has not ceased from his labors and entered into the rest of Christ Jesus.
